crafty afternoon



Lily and I have spent the afternoon at the craft table while hub has spent the afternoon sleeping off last nights excesses and todays New Year Dinner lol We had a lovely afternoon, Lily loves to craft with me and loves to look through my stash even though she has a stash of her own ;o)




Card 1 is for the challenge over at Magnolia vs Stampavie The Sarah Kay image came from a bloggy buddy and I love it, but cropped it with my new nesties to fit the sketch. The backing paper came in a secret santa parcel on a parchment forum I visit, love the colour so funky lol. Sarah Kay is coloured with watercolour pencils. Flowers and brads from stash, lace from blog candy. I am also entering this card onto the Cute Card Thursday chellenge as there is an open theme this week :o)




Card 2 is for the very first week of the Sugar Bowl challenge. I have used the gorgeous Macbeth stamp I won on Kath's blog candy with some papers I received in a blog candy......just realised most of this card has arrived from blog candies :o) Macbeth has been coloured with whispers pens. There is a peel off "best wishes" on the ribbon slider but it doesn't show so well in the picture. This card is for my hub's birthday next week, I am hoping he will like it lol

Glad to see that Macbeth ended up with a lovely new mummy & doesn't Kath put together the best candy ever... how often can you make a whole card from candy...

Look forward to seeing more of your creations.
